A solid group of nine lined up for Monday's $34,000 Preferred Trot, and American invader Master Of Law turned in an eye-catching rally to win in 1:52.2 for trainer/driver Jimmy Takter. The gelding had a gapped-off start, and as a result he got away sixth from the rail. Murmur Hanover led through fractions of :26.2, :56 and 1:24.2 before being overtaken in the lane by race favorite Flanagan Memory. Despite parking every step of the way, Flanagan Memory trotted clear of the field in deep stretch before weakening late. Master Of Law, who was eighth at the head of the lane, powered home in :26.3 to win by half a length over EL Titan. Windsun Revenge was a lapped-on third.
